Greenhouse is one of the most comprehensive systems for applicant tracking and recruiting that works best for midsize and large companies that require advanced scheduling, customization, and a straightforward workflow.
We love Pinpoint’s emphasis on marketing and recruiting: top-of-funnel products with this level of sophistication are rare.
ClearCompany has been around since 2004, but its product has evolved to remain relevant. It is a solid platform that works well in today’s workplace.
Trakstar Hire is highly customizable. The ATS provides a single plan that includes all its features without limits, making it an excellent choice for mid-sized businesses.
VidCruiter is known chiefly for video interviews, but they also offer a solid ATS solution and Quick Apply, a hit feature with both TA teams and candidates.
JazzHR is great because it’s not trying to be what it’s not: a one-size-fits-all product. This platform is tailor-made for the needs of SMB customers.
We love BambooHR's ATS because it's truly built to scale. The platform will support your team's HR needs, no matter the pace or direction of your growth.
We love Recruitee's focus on internal referrals. Employee-recommended candidates tend to be easier to close and perform well on the job, so Recruitee got it right!
We admire Teamtailor's emphasis on the candidate's initial impression. This focus on creating a stellar candidate journey is consistent throughout the platform.
Manatal made our list because it's budget-friendly, AI-equipped, and its pricing is transparent—no need to call a sales rep just for a ballpark figure.
Ashby offers the entire recruiting tech stack: ATS, CRM/Sourcing, Scheduling, and Analytics—great first ATS for SMBs or those needing to consolidate their HR and TA stacks.
